    Just received a used P2V+ with damaged gimbal. Just wondering if anybody knows why two of the gimbal motors get warm after a few minutes of "testing" to see why the camera and gimbals don't work. There is voltage coming out of the wiring harnesses, but there is no indicator light or gimbal activity. The ribbon cable is intact and everything else looks OK. Is there some sort of factory "reset"? Can't find any useful info in the manual relating to these sorts of issues.

    By the number of P2V+ camera casualties there are out in ebay land, I'm beginning to think DJI didn't design enough ruggedness into this unit.

    I am bound and determined to find a way to fix these buggers so folks don't have to spend as much for camera repairs as it cost to buy a perfect P2V.

    Any input would be welcomed. :|
